We are having V-day presents a little early this year... Since we have nothing better to do and I am trying to use this time to catch up on the blogging and sewing I always think about but never quite squeeze into the day.
I have wanted to make a soft toy for the Bug since before he ever got here but I couldn't decide what. I wanted something out of natural fabrics that wasn't complicated and left a lot to the imagination. And recently, something he can chew on became one of the things I was looking for. Enter Last Minute Sewing Gifts. I have made a couple things from this book in the last couple years (which apparently I never mentioned here because I can't find them.)
This little guy is made from sweater felt I have had for a while. Being 100% wool felt makes it the perfect toy to snuggle and chew on. It is super soft and squeezable. The orange is my favorite which I keep using bit by bit and hope never to run completely out of. The blue is a delicious fuzzy merino.
I hope he likes it. He'll get it when he gets up from his nap. Any ideas for a name?
For Senor, I made a new lunch bag. It is simple, just a reversible drawstring bag made from Robert Koffman fabrics I have been dying to put to good use. I think Senor likes it.

He made me these cookies that were approved by the Black Apple. We ran out of vanilla and had to use a little almond extract... They are huge. They are chewy. They are awesome.
